Matching HID fogs for 6000K headlights?

I have both 4300K in my headlamps D2S and my fogs D2R....The fogs are significantly more yellowish due to the lack of projectors.

I will be upgrading(changing colors) to 6000K for my headlamps but I am afraid that 6000K for the fogs aren't going to match.....

Anyone have any ideas? Should I go 7000K for the fogs to offset?

I see, i couldn't understand your wording earlier....

But you have the opposite problem....your headlights look whiter than you fogs....for me its the other way around...My headlights look bluer than my fogs.

Where did you get your fogs HID bulbs from?

I think I might go 7000 or 8000K for the fogs, since its all for show anyway....(not car shows )
